You know that I usually talk about high-end makeup brands. Absolutely not because they’re sponsored, but just because I am addicted to these beautiful packaging and the quality of it. I also already shared my daily beauty routine with you in a video on my YouTube Channel (subscribe here), where I got to share my absolute favorites when it comes to my makeup. Still, I know that these products are not always in everybody’s budget, so I thought why not try out some new, affordable brands with products all under €20 – and some even under €5!? I tried out different products from three different brands so, are you curious? Read about each of them below the photos!
Hope you will like it and if you have any budget makeup brans I don’t know yet, than please share them in the comments with me!
Here I got to try out three different blushes, all under €5. I mean, can you even image?! I was very advantaged before I tried these products, because I thought they or don’t give color at all, or they would be way too powdery so your face is all covered in pink. Well, non of these were true. They color as much as my favorite Dior blush, but as I said they’re much cheaper. In this look I used the No. 004 Pink one on my cheeks, but I also like to play with the No. 002 Mocha and make a little contour shadow with it since it has a little brown teint as well. For a more spring and natural look I recommend the No. 001 Beige with a little baby orange glow.
My favorite beauty store in the Netherlands is by far Douglas. I got to work for the company when I just got 15 years old, and worked there until I was almost 19. In these 3,5 year I learned SO much about beauty and myself. My confidence grew and I became less shy. But that’s not what I want to talk about. As you might know, Douglas has its own beauty line. From skincare to makeup. You might already have seen the Heaven Foundation in my makeup video, which is seriously my current favorite now. I don’t really like using foundation, so a concealer or compact one is just the way I like it to use. I also tried out their new Up Kiss & Curl mascara who gives these insane curled lashes. Perfect for a night out together with this Mattisim lipgloss in dark Purple, how sexy! (and believe me, it’s so soft!)
Last but definitely not least: NYC. Probably the most affordable makeup brand I know. Lately I am wearing their lipstick in Dark nude a lot, which you might have seen in my video as well. It is just the perfect everyday color and just costs €4,49. I really like the soft pink which I am wearing in this post as well, but I think it is more for the really hot summer days. I also got to try out their Get it All Mascara which is for me a regular mascara. When you want a natural look for your eyelashes you definitely have to go for this one. The quality of the mascara self is super (it stays on all day) and the brush is perfect in use for the fine lashes. I use it most of the time for my under lashes or when I do a little touch up. At last their Foundation Stick which I still have to master haha. I am not used to working with these, but their cover up very well so often I use them for small spots.
I really like to try out new make-up products 🙂 Of course I have the ones which I would never change but I think something new is always great 🙂 These lipsticks from NYC sound really good – I think I will try them out asap!
Thank you so much for sharing and have a lovely day dear <3
